Age doesn’t discriminate, and neither does low back pain. Fortunately, exercise and movement are for everyone, and are fundamental in preventing low back pain and reducing the risk of reinjury. A strength and conditioning program that’s been designed especially for you is the surest and safest way to take control of your pain and continue to live your life to the fullest.
Strength and conditioning exercises are specifically designed to build up muscle bulk and stability, and they’re often overlooked when it comes to general health. Your physio is trained to assess you for physical limitations and injuries and prepare the best strength and conditioning program for you to keep you active and safe.
Pushing yourself is good for you
Starting a new strength and conditioning program may not feel comfortable in the beginning, but we promise it will become habit it if you commit to it. The danger in becoming comfortable in an easy and familiar exercise routine, is that as your body ages, you inevitably lose muscle and bone strength, your balance worsens, and your posture suffers. So if you’re not maintaining your strength, you’re at a greater risk of pain and injuries.
The best approach is to take care now. A tailored strength and conditioning program will be a lot more comfortable and manageable than the low back pain and injuries you may sustain if you stay in your old habits.
Bounce back faster
Did you know that those who exercise and have stronger muscles can recover faster from injuries? The right strength and conditioning program can reduce the risk of injuries and falls while your physical and mental performance also improve. Metabolism and balance also improves with exercise, while the risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures lessen.
When is the best time to start a strength and conditioning program?
Now. The best way to start any new program is to be screened by your physio for any injury risk prior to beginning. If any risk factors are picked up they can be addressed so aches, pains and injuries can be prevented.
